Suggest you go to and enter the words "mercurial poisoning" or "mercury poisoning."

The Gulf Coast corner of Texas is known as "Chemical Row." There are many chemical plants there. There are/were probably MANY chances for poisoning of all kinds. Of course, if you find something, you are also probably going to find a big governmental cover-up.

Just a thought: why not contact the Environmental Protection Agency and see what they can tell you?
